Holiness leads to loneliness
Without holiness no man shall see God. To be holy means to SEPARATE YOURSELF unto God, to put yourself one side for His use only, to reserve yourself unto Him. To follow Jesus Christ means that you will be lonely very often. Your friends will forsake you, they will leave you, they will turn their back on you. You will be persecuted and hated but you will never be forsaken by God. Jesus Christ will never leave you, He will never forsake you, but HOLINESS IS A CHOICE.
If we want eternal life we have to choose Jesus ABOVE all other things and when we choose Jesus and obedience to Him then we make ourselves an enemy of the world because the world hates Jesus. If we love Jesus Christ we will prefer His company, His presence and His approval above all other things. It will not matter to us that friends and family reject us, that they do not approve of us that they avoid us, because we follow Jesus Christ and we love Him. If we do not separate ourselves unto Him and do what is pleasing to Him, and thus live holy, righteously, different form the rest of the world and cleanse ourselves of all unrighteousness to be pure and acceptable unto Jesus, then we will not enter His Kingdom.
We cannot walk with Jesus and walk with sin. We cannot be a friend of the world and live in the company and in the presence of Jesus Christ. Without holiness no man shall see God. Do not expect to be received and welcomed by a huge church family because the huge “church families” are on the broad road to destruction, they are as much part of the world as the world itself.
If you follow Jesus Christ you will often be lonely because not many people follow Jesus but you will always be in His company. He will never leave you and He will never forsake you. What better place is there to be than with Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
